    just make sure that when you pull the tranny out, it is in fact the rear main that is leaking. I had the same problem and when the tranny came out it turned out the be the crankshaft plug that had shifted and was leaking oil into the bell housing and leaked out between the engine and trans.

    X2 make sure that it is the seal. I thought my seal went bad, so i pulled my trans. I was actually a bad slave. My slave was so fucked up that it was spitting out black as sin brake fluid - which i thought was oil.
